Emergency Mouthpiece Airbag

Here you can see Martin Hobbs (of the London Philharmonic Orchestra horn section) testing the prototype of my new Emergency Mouthpiece Airbag

This latest invention of mine is to protect the lips against bruising if too much mouthpiece pressure is used. 

Tiny sensors built into the rim of the mouthpiece pick up any variations in pressure exerted onto the lips. When this pressure exceeds a preset level the airbag is instantaneously deployed. 

Some further callibration adjustment to the device is still necessary before it can go into production. Martin will be writing about his experiences with the Emergency Mouthpiece Airbag when he gets out of hospital. He has whiplash injuries to his neck and is in need of some dental reconstruction to his middle front teeth.
